Maybe it's bc I'm newer to birth works but when I get an inquiry, I try to call or email back within a few hours.  It just seems like the polite thing to do and better for business.  But now I'm on the other side of things, calling mws and doulas for myself, and very few return my calls.  I don't mean several days before I hear from someone, I mean not at all or many months down the line.  Is this typical?

I think that is a-typical... I personally return calls ASAP, and expect the same.

Unless I am at a birth, I return calls within a few hours.

I get many of my contacts via email, and if it's a simple inquiry I respond ASAP. I return calls during office hours, which may not be every day.

Most of my contacts come from the contact sheet on my website, and I try to email ASAP, which is usually within a few hours. If someone wants to speak with me on the phone then I try to arrange something the next day at a specified time of day, usually nap time.
